Kate is a geologist with research and teaching interests that center around provenance studies, stratigraphy, and tectonics, especially the use of petrography and mineral geochemistry to decipher source-area regional geologic histories and sedimentation records. Kate has worked in New Zealand, Australia, Alaska, California, and Mexico. Kate's current research includes work on Quaternary glacio-fluvial sediments in Minnesota as well as petrographic and geochemical studies on granites and associated rocks in central Minnesota. Kate is also actively involved in Science Education; she works with pre- and in-service teachers, and is involved with the development of hands-on activities for classrooms and labs at the K-12 and undergraduate level. Kate is very interested in outreach and education activities in the Earth Sciences.
Kate is excited to be part of ANDRILL (the NSF-funded Antarctic Geologic Drilling Project) in 2007/2008. She will be spending approximately 2.5 months 'on the ice' (in October / November / December 2007), and is working with the ANDRILL Outreach and Education Group.
